Topic 1: Discussion of Service Leadership Mid-Year numbers

Paul Dippell reports on how MSPs are thriving (or surviving) during the recession. We discuss the report.


Topic 2: Apple's new “privacy policy” is challenged by Facebook and others.

Is it really just a ploy to to manipulate ads without allowing other platforms to do the same? We discuss.

Topic 3: Life after the pandemic - Automation and Anti-Immigrant Fears.

This is a continuing theme throughout history. Workers always fear that technology will displace them. And, to the extent that companies turn to immigrants, there is historical fear that jobs will be lost to immigrants as well.

We discuss: Is it time to rethink how we talk about it?
